Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry Sarah, about Calvin's condition. I know all too well how hard it is to have to make this decision for your precious guy. I know it is especially hard for your daughter. The coughing and gagging and his disappearance is telling us that he may also, along with his kidney issues, may also have heart disease which is making things extra hard for your sweet Clavin. It sounds like the best thing you can do for your precious old friend, Sarah, is to relieve his distress.Your vet has already told you this and the fact that your young daughter wants to be with him, will not change the fact that he is suffering now and it is time to think of what is best for Calvin and put our own feelings aside.
Again, Sarah, I know this is very hard but I know you will do what is best for precious Calvin and so will your vet.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
Sincerely, ***** *****
